Why is Solo Leveling Episode 8 delayed?

The delay in the release date for Solo Leveling Episode 8 is due to the fact that Aniplex will roll out a recap episode on Saturday, February 24. The recap episode will cover the events that have occurred so far, along with a narration for the same. Aniplex is notorious for airing mid-season recaps, as has been seen before with another hit anime, Mashle: Magic and Muscles.

Another reason why the episode has been delayed is due to voice actor Taito Ban's health. On February 13, the voice actor for Jinwoo confirmed he had “tested positive for the new coronavirus” on X, formerly Twitter. “I will now take a good rest and concentrate on my health so that I can return in perfect condition. We apologize for any inconvenience and concern we may have caused to everyone who has supported us and to everyone involved in our work,” he added.

Where to watch Solo Leveling Episode 8?

Solo Leveling Episode 8 will first be broadcast in Japan on networks like Tokyo MX, GYT, GTV, BS11, CBC, and YTV. Meanwhile, international audiences can stream the episode online on Crunchyroll after a short delay of an hour. However, it is important to note that the platform requires a subscription to stream the episodes.

What to expect from Solo Leveling Episode 8?

Since the next episode is expected to be adapted from chapters 28 to 34 of the webcomic, fans can likely see the appearance of C-rank hunter Song Chi-Yul and B-rank healer Lee Joohee. The duo is expected to take on a D-rank Dungeon alongside the series' lead, Jin-Woo, who will most likely set on another extraordinary quest.
